Jell-O There

In the final chapter of THE DHARMA BUMS, the Jack Kerouac character makes "raspberry Jello the color of rubies in the setting sun," which just goes to prove everything I said about everything ever in my previous "post." Just "click" on it if you don't believe me! Also, it marks the second Kerouac novel I have read with Jell-O in it. Also, it makes me sorry I never took the time to catalog every book I have ever read with Jell-O in it. I have shamefully underestimated the role of Jell-O in American literature. That's my cross to bear.
